re: U.S. Denies Malware Attack Against France
If the United States decided to hack the French Government, we most likely would not be reading about it. Furthermore if the US was performing reconnaissance I would hope their sources would be more reliable than Facebook. Just because the malware used is specific for high targets, doesn't implicate nor point at the US. Sounds like the french newspaper needed to sell some newspaper, because I haven't read one fact backing their claim.

re: U.S. Denies Malware Attack Against France
A while ago it has been revealed in the Washington Post: FLAME was developed by the United States and shared with Israel. Security analysts say it was a highly sophisticated malware program. The FLAME windows malware shows why President Hollande should develop a French Operating System based on Linux, as some nations in Asia did. Closed source operating systems are a high risk for national security.
